上海乌托邦Editor‘s note: China Radio International recently published a commentary on its website exposing t
he hypocrisy of US government’s criticism of the human rights situation in other countries. Excerpts below:
The United States has long used human rights as a means of putting pressure on other co上海乌托邦品茶微信
untries. Whenever it is unhappy with some country, it will publish a human rights report of that country.
上海乌托邦However, it should reflect on its own human rights situation before criticizing other c
ountries. For many nonwhite Americans, the “American Dream” is actually an “Am
erican nightmare” as white supremacy and incitement to hatred have become so rampant in the country.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Data from Mapping Police Violence show that there are hundreds of police shootings of African-Americans in the US each year, many fatal.
上海乌托邦In international politics, US politicians turn a blind eye to their own country’s bad human rights record, while issuing irres
ponsible comments about human rights in other countries. Recently they even attacked China’s policies in the Xin
jiang Uygur and Tibet autonomous regions, accusing China of restricting religious freedom.
Are US politicians sure that they are not blaming themselves? Their words are like jokes that aren’t funny.上海乌托邦品茶微信
How can US politicians blame other countries? They should look at their own problems first.
上海乌托邦The US has widening social gaps, worsening sec
urity conditions, worse gender inequality and racial discrimination.
It is time the US cured its own diseases first.上海乌托邦
For all its self-promotion that it is a defender of human rights, the US
上海乌托邦品茶微信is unable, or unwilling, to address the issue of racial discrimination.Until it can talk of i
ts own human rights situation with a clear conscience, it is in no position to criticize other countries.

Jason Juang shapes HP’s new strategy in gaming PC market to boost sales in China
上海乌托邦Jason Juang, managing director of HP China, clearly remembers details of his first visit to the Chinese mainland 26 years ago.
The Shanghai airport was small and shabby. Even a short shower was enough to flood it.
In 1993, as an employee of the US tech giant HP Inc, Juang was sent t上海乌托邦
o the Chinese mainland to share his marketing knowledge and experiences with the local staff
上海乌托邦品茶微信. Back then, computers were a luxury for many Chinese companies, let alone individual consumers.
Within less than three decades, however, China has become the world’s largest market for
electronics. Having witnessed ups and downs of the country’s electronics market for over 20 years, Ju上海乌托邦
ang said he is amazed by its unbelievable transformation from nothing to top.
“We knew it (the transformation) would happen, but never expected it to come at such a stunning speed,” said Juang.
上海乌托邦品茶微信The 56-year-old senior executive has spent most of his career with H
P, starting from a front-line sales professional to his current position at the helm of the compa
ny’s China business. His down-to-earth working style has had an impact on how HP China works.上海乌托邦品茶微信
Now riding the gaming and esports boom in China, Juang wants to injec
t a fresh and strong momentum into the 80-year-old US company’s business in the coun
上海乌托邦try. He wants to bring state-of-the-art, tailor-made products to China and encourage local innovation.
“With 619 million e-gamers, China is now the world’s largest gaming marke

Known as the Chicago of China and located alongside the Yangtze River, Wuhan, capital
of Central China’s Hubei province, has been a business hub throughout the nation’s modern history. 上海乌托邦女神会所
In recent years, the city’s Hankoubei area has represented the “Wuhan model”, showing th
上海乌托邦e world how China’s inland regions have found innovative ways to develop their economies.
Since the start of the Age of Exploration in the early 15th century, global
trade has been focused on oceans, and the coastal regions in eastern China have emerged rap 上海乌托邦女神会所
idly over the past century. However, the vast inland regions of China were left behind because of their geographic di
上海乌托邦sadvantages, and lack of transportation and communications channels and platforms.
This situation has been changing in recent years, as the nation is shifting its attention t
o its inland regions, to open them up and integrate them into the world economy. 上海乌托邦女神会所
With the proposal of the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s international trade is entering an “inland age”.
Hankoubei’s Wuhan model shows how inland regions can open up 上海乌托邦
The local government of Wuhan is making efforts to build the Hankoubei area into the nation’s biggest domestic trade center.
上海乌托邦女神会所The area is located between the largest railway station in Asia, the largest airport in Central China and the largest deep-water port in Central China.
In September 2016, the Hankoubei International Commodity Trade Center was listed as a national pilot market for fore
ign trade by on-the-scene purchasing, the only such market in Central and western China. 上海乌托邦女神会所
During the first Wuhan International Commodity Fair of Friendship City, taking place from Nov 14
-16, more than 100 overseas mayors, officials and entrepreneurs visited Hankoubei, where hun 上海乌托邦
dreds of kinds of goods from more than 20 countries and regions around the world were exhibited. More than 100 i
nternational buyers were attracted to the event, and about 40 agreements were reached.
上海乌托邦女神会所Since its opening-up in 2009, the area has aimed to become a commodity distribution center
for not only Chinese inland regions but the outside world. The Hankoubei wholesale market has gener

be further strengthened. And the two sides should expedite their efforts to promote youth exchanges and people-to-people engagement in o
rder to deepen mutual understanding. It is good to see that the two governments have decided to take the 2019 China-Japan Youth Exc上海乌托邦
上海乌托邦hange Promotion Year as an opportunity to initiate senior-level cultural exchanges to bring the two peoples closer.
As for security, the two countries should constructively manage and control their conflicts and dive
rgences through talks, strengthen dialogue in diplomacy and security, and build a constructive bila上海乌托邦品茶微信
teral security relationship. In fact, the series of exchanges, meetings, dialogues and negotiations held between the two countries, their defense m
inistries and militaries since last year is conducive to building constructive security relations.
上海乌托邦品茶微信It is necessary for the two sides to abide by the consensuses they have reached and properly handle sensitiv
e issues. Amicable Sino-Japanese ties have obvious spillover effects. And the two sides have enough reasons to strengthen e
xchanges, coordination and cooperation on international and regional issues to jointly cope with global and regional ch
allenges, and contribute to global governance to make it more equitable and rational. Only in this way can the two si上海乌托邦
des base their relationship on coordination, not competition, and create a brighter future for themselves.
The two sides may encounter some practical difficulties and problems in forging a peaceful, friendly region in the ne上海乌托邦品茶微信
w era. But they should always keep the bigger picture in mind and refer to the consensuses they have reached to resolve th
上海乌托邦eir disputes and differences. After all, a peaceful, cooperative and friendly East China Sea is in the interest of both sides.
The continuous improvement of China-Japan ties is subject to not only external factors, but also how some key, sensitive issu
es are handled. And it would take concrete cooperation projects, if not acute challenges, to test the reliability of Sin上海乌托邦品茶微信
o-Japanese ties in the new era, although both sides’ moves reflect their overlapping strategic benefits, at least for now.

The Korean Peninsula is seeing positive signs over denuclearization, with both the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea making all th
e right gestures. Tension has been eased and motivation for regional cooperation boosted. There cannot be a better time for promoting a regional po上海乌托邦
litical and security agenda, as well as economic and cultural exchange, for a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.
These are the best times for Northeast Asia since the 19th century. Countr
ies in the region were colonized by the Western powers, and later by their Asian neig上海乌托邦
hbor, Japan. After World War II, Northeast Asia was caught in the Cold War and divided into two camps.
It has remained the only region still plagued by the Cold War mentality, because the United States has refused to make上海乌托邦
peace with the DPRK. To defend itself from the US, the DPRK resorted to developing nuclear weapons.
In 2018, the DPRK declared a major shift in its national policy, from the previous parallel developmen上海乌托邦品茶微信
t of nuclear weapons and economy to the current focus on the economy. This move has been viewed as an
上海乌托邦initiative to halt nuclear development and extend an olive branch to the other nations.
The DPRK’s concession on its nuclear development has led to breakthroughs in its foreign relations. Two summits between US President Dona
上海乌托邦ld Trump and DPRK top leader Kim Jong-un have been held, as well as three meetings between the DPRK and ROK leaders.
China-Japan relations, which had hit rock bottom following differences over the Diaoyu Isl
ands, are back on track. The ROK and China have started to mend relations that were strained because of US d上海乌托邦品茶微信
eployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-ballistic missile system in the ROK.
China-DPRK relations reached a new high. The positive signs in this region and in the bilateral relations have created a favo
rable atmosphere for regional economic cooperation. Talks on a trilateral China-Japan-ROK free trade ag
reement have resumed, and Japan has voiced its willingness to engage in the Belt and Road Initiative.上海乌托邦品茶微信
All stakeholders in the region should look at the bigger picture and build a peaceful and prosperous Northeast Asia.
First, all the Northeast Asian countries should reach a consensus on cooperation. All nations should safeguard regional stability and press ah
ead for greater development for the long-term goal of building a peaceful and prosperous region.
